I definitely over dressed for the run but it felt really good to sweat for an hour and feel HOT.
We did things a bit different yesterday and Andrew woke up early and went out first and then I went once he got back. St. George just might need to be a monthly thing during the winter so that Andrew can get in more mountain biking during our snowy months. It’s crazy to me that we just have to drive 3.5 hours south to feel like we are in a completely different season.
The kids all slept really well and I took the advice from the comments in last week’s post that people gave me to stop pumping in the middle of the night even though Beck was sleeping through the night… I’m feeling human again. I was worried that my milk was dropping last week (I wasn’t sure but for 2 days Beck was still acting hungry after each feeding and I thought it was because he was going so long in between feedings at night and I thought that was causing me to not produce as much milk) so I pumped after each feeding for a few days but now my body thinks I have 3 babies to feed ha. Like Andrew always says—> I have no middle ground:) I’m an all or nothing kind of a person ha but I’m sure my body will figure out the right amount again soon.
I went out for 7.16 miles @ 8:23 average pace on the dirt and I came across this old school treadmill randomly in the middle of nowhere. I was very confused when I saw it… It almost looks like this was the first ever version of a treadmill ha.
Brooke asked if she could go trail running too so when I got back we all drove over to St. George Narrows to hike and run around. Brooke told me that trail running is harder than road running but way more fun and I absolutely agree with her on that observation.
Skye really does think she is 8 years old, nothing will hold her back and she is so confident in her hiking abilities.
I was pretty excited about the fact that we all had top knots…
A hike/run is the best thing to do before a car ride with littles (or with me). Everyone was ready to sit down for a while.
PS Yesterday we drove on a few parts of the St. George Marathon course and I’m only a little embarrassed to admit this but it made me tear up a little. I just have such an emotional connection to that course and I can’t wait to run it again someday.
We grabbed food to eat in the car. 5 Guys burgers and fries… IMO the best burger joint there is and their seasoned fries are pure heaven.
And then we got back to Utah and the girl’s outfits did not match the weather.
It was dad’s bday yesterday so we were able to stop by and see him yesterday. I share more about his cancer here but each birthday we get to celebrate with him makes me so thankful because at the beginning of his diagnosis we thought he only had a few months left here with us.
If you eat burgers, what do you think is the best burger joint?
Longest road trip you have ever taken?
Do you feel like you sweat a little bit, medium bit or a lot when you run?
Those of you with a significant other right now.. do they love to exercise? When do they usually work out? If you have kids.. how do you arrange your work outs?
-Usually Andrew will work out at night but we were just talking about how in 4ish years Brooke will be old enough to babysit and we will be able to do some workouts together when we want!
